Come discover and fall in love with this stylishly updated home tucked away on a quiet, private lane that is both a peaceful escape from the city, while still being only a short stroll away from the “Top of the Hill” and nearby trailheads to Wissahickon Valley. Greeting you every day, the home’s charming architecture with gray cedar siding and window boxes, complete with cobblestone and gravel driveway will transport you away to what feels like your very own Cape Cod retreat. Upon entering you will quickly come to appreciate the relaxed and comfortable lifestyle the home’s open and airy floor plan provides. Glass French doors and a vaulted ceiling create a lovely and cheery sunlit center-hall entry. The main level with its wide plank heart of pine wood floors, crown molding, and generous number of windows creates a gracious yet cozy atmosphere. The heart of the home is its fabulous kitchen with its bank of windows providing you with both serene views of the grounds and lots of natural light. A beautiful Quartzite countertop with glass tile backsplash, large center island with seating and a built-in microwave, a convenient desk, walk-in pantry, induction range and Miele dishwasher complete the kitchen you have been dreaming of having one day. The adjoining family room features: two sets of French doors that open to a very large deck and fenced-in back yard, a lovely window seat in the box bay window, and inside-access to your oversized two car garage, as well as the private entrance to the home’s 480 SQ FT heated 2nd floor loft with skylights, dormer windows and full bathroom. Imagine any number of desired needs and uses being met by this space: An office, a studio, or an in-law, guest, or nanny suite. Picture yourself celebrating holidays in the inviting formal dining and living rooms that flow and connect with each other around a pleasing two-sided fireplace. The second level’s floor plan features: two large bedrooms with large closets and wonderful views that share a hall bathroom, upstairs laundry, and pull-down stairs to access the attic’s storage space. A large and alluring primary suite features its very own private covered balcony with spectacular views, a newly remodeled bathroom with skylights, and walk-in closet. There is still much more living space to consider. The home’s 1,200 SQ FT walk-out basement with glass French doors and windows, and high ceiling offers a vast amount of potential.
